    Halfpenny ID check

    Looks live a reverse D to me as well - the lighthouse matches.
  2. Yeah I got the impression that most resubmissions were cracked out and not sent in the original slab/tag, so I'd say there is an appreciable amount of overlap, but there's not a lot that can be done about that.
  3. Ouch! Someone is going to make big loss at some point. I thought they removed the old one if you sent in the old slab or the bit of paper in it when resubmitting?

    I've noticed this error when trying to post a link a few times now.
  5. Yeah, some "modern junk" is surprisingly hard to acquire.
  6. Some of those portraits are quite exagerated!
  7. I guess they advertised anywhere they could but I source quite a few "modern junk" coins (Fiji, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands) from central and Eastern Europe for whatever reason.

    NEW UNLISTED VARIETY of 1873 HALF-PENNY

    How long ago was the C# reverse discovered? It was mentioned in 2004 but possibly discovered before then?

    NEW UNLISTED VARIETY of 1873 HALF-PENNY

    I found that post: http://www.predecimal.com/forum/topic/3664-coin-aquisition-of-the-week/?page=502&tab=comments#comment-141727 Looking at it, the rim is slightly recessed - is that not a reliable indicator for reverse C#?

    NEW UNLISTED VARIETY of 1873 HALF-PENNY

    @Bronze & Copper Collector do you have those images handy? I hadn't heard of this until now. And just confirming that the C# can be spotted by a flat shield rim while the other reverses used in 1873 all have recessed shield rims?

    NEW UNLISTED VARIETY of 1873 HALF-PENNY

    Yep looks like it - the parallel lighthouse sides are there. Couldn't quite make out the obverse but it's still a rare reverse.

    Help And Advice For A Beginner

    I would echo the above sentiments about buying a book before anything else. If you're going to sell as well I'd be checking my change for anything worth selling as it seems like some of the low mintage commemoratives can got for a bit over face value. I use a spreadsheet to track my coins - it's not perfect but it does the job.

    A parallel universe?

    Interesting indeed. I'm surprised there's so much at stake here for what are child's play - I know toys can go for crazy prices but having millions of dollars worth of trading cards?
  14. Disabling the preview just makes it a plain old link but inline preview makes it look like a quote box with some other details I think.
